HOW I CLINCHED THE DEAL USING PLUM BLOSSOM DIVINATION

When Master Alan announced he will be conducting his first ever course on Plum Blossom Divination, I was pretty excited and signed up immediately. As a former novice learner of another divination system, I found the other system a bit overwhelming. Imagine this, after casting the divination, I have to follow the direction that will be beneficial when I travel to my meeting destination or attempting to find an “advantage” sitting position and or observing special phenomenon… it gets a bit overbearing especially I am not adept at directions !!!

Mid way through the course, I was presented with a professional dilemma and after much pondering decided to use what I have learned thus far to cast the hexagrams and attempting to seek guidance. Luckily, Master Alan’s teaching is very straight to the point devoid of flowery and motivational languages. Master Alan was amused by my attempt but encouraged it on the basis that this will be a case study in the future.

INITIAL GUA

A short synopsis…

We were presented with an opportunity to participate in a strategic tender that shall we win, can potentially provide much publicity and lucrative business for longer term. However, we were faced with competitions that hold current business relationship advantage. From the onset, we are already on the back foot before we started.

In the initial Hexagram, the asker (me) was presented with a non favourable nor disadvantaged situation. It also indicates hesitation on my part to be involved in the tender process. I discussed this with senior management personnel, and we agreed that this will be one tough tender but the decision rest on me to participate or not. After casting and reviewing the hexagram, I decided to go ahead and the reason as to be continued below ….

MUTUAL GUA

In the mutual Gua, the asker (me) is in a favourable position and true enough the end user has indicated their willingness to give us an opportunity to be the main supplier of the project. Before this even take place, it is obvious that we have to submit our tender submission. At the time when the hexagram was casted, I was slightly puzzled on how we can be in a favourable position?

Master Alan words of wisdom (or his constant reminder) comes to mind… “ Heaven will give you a hint of the way, but you will have to make the journey yourself”

After much strategic competitive analysis during the tender process ( or in business lingo- find the gap), it daunted on me that there is an area we hold an advantage against the competitions but one we had overlooked. With that in mind, I take a full plunge into the tender submission with special focus on the “key benefit area”. I advised my direct management that we will participate in the tender and we will clinch the deal in January but we will have to go through various hurdles before we get the final sign off. Some found my comment a bit strange but ….

FINAL GUA

In the final Hexagram, the asker will be in a favourable position but just marginally as the Hexagram indicates potential challenges.

In January 2021, we were advised by the customer that we are the successful tenderer. I was requested to come to their office at the earliest convenience. True to the divination, we were presented with a number of wish list requirements for us to meet at the meeting. We received an initial order ( the contract was split into 2 with the second one the deal clincher) after the requirements were met to customer’s specification. When we thought that the main course deal was clinched after we met the requirements, we ran into yet another final hurdle. Suffice to say, we have to go through some legal and tedious process to satisfy both parties interest. After much fun dealing with the paperwork and processes, we received the official contract.

And that’s how I clinched the deal using Plum Blossom Divination. If I didn’t cast the divination on that faithful day in December 2020 and reviewed the results, we as in a company, would probably not have even participated in the tender.

2021 Astrological Review

Disclaimer: Those who have followed me over the years knows that I am not a fan for general predictions. Thus it was no different for 2020. Some masters got it right while majority was wrong about 2020. The one master who got it almost correct took it from the old text of Earth Mother Classics and expanded it.

This year I have received many invitation including from Exxx Mxxxxxx newspaper to do an on camera interview since they wanted to know about Xin Chou 辛丑 the Metal Ox year (2021) and how it impact Malaysia in particular to Foreign Investment, Economy and Covid 19. There are also many students and group members who are eager to hear some good news from me.

Those who got it wrong is a testament on my teaching to some of my student on this subject of “How To Predict Like A Pro?”. Those of you will know what I have told you in private is correct. Its a little like magic show, its not really magic but some logical, eye deceiving trick applied. Of course the less sophisticated version goes like this.

The famous master will have his yearly talk on date X, then all his students will organise their talk on a later than date X so they will share out to their own customers and audience what their teacher have shared with some minor modification to the presentation. This is the level of Chinese metaphysics today. They were all given a fish but never taught to fish.

Clearly, those who chases after general annual prediction is more of a commercial guy. A true master knows these are not the real application of Chinese Metaphysics. If the commercial guy is in good luck, sure he will get a few corrects. The reason is Chinese Metaphysics is always dependent on the Taiji. If you truly understand what is a Taiji then you will get what I mean.

Nonetheless, it was indeed entertaining to read what these masters have to say. Maybe I will pen down a few over the years of observation.

One master likes to shift the prediction point as he likes. One year he uses the center of the world map which is somewhere in the Middle East and the next year he uses Beijing to justify his predictions.

Plum Blossom Divination – Birthday Gift

Students asking me for more real stories on Plum Blossom Divination so I spoken to a few students and SJ volunteered to share this case she did for her self after learning this beautiful art of Plum Blossom.

Yi Jing Study

plum blossom divination is derived from the knowledge of Yi Jing, the earliest knowledge of Chinese metaphysics that already dated back as long as 6000 years ago according to some historical text.

Plum blossom is an easy art to cast and to help us by giving us a clue onto the situation we have concerns and seek guidance. In this case, it was done for learning purposes by the student.

This student has previous knowledge from other schools and she knows that every schools of Yi Jing is also different in their approach and methodology. Let’s read on her story :

Plum Blossom Divination Case

Divination is one of the 5 key aspects of Chinese Metaphysics study. There are various methods to do a divination but the easiest and accurate method is the Plum Blossom Divination or 梅花易数. The other method that is now popularly marketed is the Qi Men Dun Jia method which is harder to learn and very dependent on the calendar availability something the Plum Blossom method do not require.

Divination is a method to guide us and give us a hint about a future outcome. Sometimes all we need is a hint so we are better prepared for the eventualities. Let me share with you a REAL case my student did after learning the art of Plum Blossom Divination.


As a former novice learner of QMDJ, I decided to invest in Plum Blossom Divination (PBD) course offered by Master Alan Chong recently. Strictly personal opinion only, I find that sometimes in life all we want to know is a YES or NO answer. The many formulas and formations of QMDJ can easily lead us down a wrong path if we interpret the formation inaccurately. One of the important facts that I have been convinced is this, if we have 3 person asking the same question at the same time, generally the answer is the same at the specific period of time due to QMDJ formation at that particular point in time. Whereas in Plum Blossom Divination, you are likely to get 3 different answers and formations.

Back to the divination, I was bringing the kids to pet adoption centre on the 31st December. While browsing through the web and screening the available pet for adoption, I have “two minds” about the trip tomorrow. It was there and then spontaneously I decided to do a PBD casting. Taken a glance at an “ object” ie my table clock I decided to use the number image there to do my casting and form my hexagram.

Reflecting 2020

It has been a tradition for me to pen a few lines as we end each year and this year it is a little late but better late than never. It is late because of time, rushing the BaZi review reports as well Feng Shui annual reports.

We all know the world is still being affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Many have lost their lives to this virus and the world economy has come to almost a stop. I can imagine how many have lost their jobs, went bust in their business ventures and yet at the same time some new millionaires are created. Such is the Yin – Yang cycle playing upon us. Today total death from Covid stands at 1.8 million with 83 million infections. 1.8 million could translate to about almost 6% of the population of Malaysia.

At the local scene, Malaysia has not been spared of Covid-19. The 3rd wave has seen a rapid rise after the Sabah State election stamped from the political turmoil. As of today we have seen 463 death from the initial 124 in just less than 6 months. Total infection is 110,485 cases taking a toll on the healthcare system.

How About Me?

Case Study, General

Case of The Li Family Ancestral Hall

This is a case shared by a San He master, Wu Yi Mi from China. Very good video and well narrated in both Chinese (Cantonese) and has English subtitle. Here is the video he made and commented. Very generous of him indeed spending his time and money into making this for everyone to learn and see.

I will not narrate more on the history and background of this ancestral hall but rather comment on the Flying Star Feng Shui point of view on this ancestral hall done by a very famous master Lai Bu Yi back in the Southern Song dynasty Era.


Flying Star Feng Shui System – A San Yuan Prodigy

Over the years I have written numerous articles on Flying star a system which I am well versed in. Unfortunately for various reasons, F star has been also criticized. Partly was due to commercial reasons and partly due to poor understanding and depth in this system.

A Point Worth Mentioning

The water flow direction is important in San He water methods. He observed that sometimes the flow seems to be from left to right while other times right to left thus using this method will have limitations.
